Lou's Guide To : Eye Shadows

by - May 23, 2016

Hey everyone, and welcome to another lou's guide to. This one is going to be focused towards eyeshadows and all the different types. I hope you enjoy this post and I will see you very very soon. xx

In spring and summer I really enjoy wearing pale, shimmery shades as I think they always look really really nice with a bright, bold lip. However, in autumn and winter, I like dark and matte shades as they always look nicer with darker, berry/red toned lips.

My all time favourite palette is the L'Oreal La Palette Nude in Beige. My favourite shades are the first 3 shades at the start and then the 7th shade which is a matte dark brown. All of the shades are really pigmented and the palette comes with a really nice brush which I use for inner corner highlight. I did a full review of this in a post so click here to find out more.

A favourite small palette is the Tanya Burr Hollywood palette. This has got a highlight shade, a gold, a really glittery bronze and a dark brown shade. They all a really cute name and are sooooo pigmented.I don't really know what else to say about it so if you are interested take a look at the palette and swatches here -

My favourite cream eyeshadows are the Maybelline 24hr Colour Tattoos in 096 Creamy Beige and 35 On and On Bronze. These last all day without creasing and no primer. They do an amazing colour range that suits every skin tone. The 2 I have are bronze-y shades that ;look really nice between summer and autumn (that weird transition time). These are also really affordable as they are only £4.99 which is crazy for the quality and amount of product you get!

An alternative to cream shadows are shadow sticks. I love the Kiko ones and they do them mainly in bronze/gold/taupe shades but they are the sort that would suit any skin tone (especially pale skin). I have 04 and 06. O4 in a gold/bronze shade and 06 is a dark brown/copper shade. I can't remember exactly how much these were but \I think they are around £6/7.

The brushes I like to use are: Real Techniques Base Shadow brush, Real Techniques Deluxe Crease brush, Real Techniques Shading Brush, Real Techniques Fine Liner Brush and Real Techniques Accent Brush. I basically just love the Real Techniques brushes.

I hope you enjoyed this post, and I will see you very very soon,

Love Lou
